Duke became just the second team in the ACC Coastal to earn bowl eligibility with a 38-31 win over Boston College last weekend. Duke has reached the six win — already the highest win total since the 2018 season.
With wins over Temple, Northwestern, North Carolina A&T, Virginia, Miami and Boston College, Duke is 6-3 so far this season. With losses to Kansas, Georgia Tech and North Carolina.
Pitt is 16-9 all-time against Duke, dating back to an inaugural 52-7 win in Durham, North Carolina in 1929. Duke won five straight matchups between 1940-51, and it’s been a largely Pitt-controlled series since.
Pitt has won six games in a row against Duke and 10 of the last 11 meetings — the sole loss coming in a 51-48 double overtime loss at what-was-then Heinz Field in 2014.
Kenny Pickett threw for 416 yards and three touchdowns (helping fuel a 636-yard offensive explosion) to lead Pitt to a 54-29 win over Duke last season at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham.
The ACC Network crew will be announced later this week.
